As the term gets underway, more and more activities and events are being planned and this should be a really vibrant and busy few months. Several co-curricular activities are getting up and running from next week, many making good use of the warmer weather to get outside! We are even inviting prospective pupils and parents to visit the school towards the end of June and further information about these opportunities is available via the website.
Of course not everything is yet back to normal and some meetings and events are still taking place remotely. Among these are the second and third events in our new Talk! virtual speaker series, offering pupils, alumni and parents valuable insights into the world of work.
In the session on Thursday, 27 May at 5.00pm, the speaker will be Tania Flasck, who is Head of Water Networks for the Thames Valley at Thames Water. Tania has been in the water sector for all of her 30-year career and has worked all over the world bringing water-based programmes and projects to life. In 2020 Tania was appointed as a Non-Executive Director of British Water. This talk will be of value to anyone with an interest in sustainability, the environment and the management of large projects.
The subsequent session will be held on Thursday, 17 June at 5.00pm and will feature two Wilson's alumni, David Walsh and Adam Woolnough. David and Adam are establishing successful careers as barristers with Essex Court Chambers, a leading chambers in London's Lincoln's Inn. They will discuss the training and personality traits required to be a successful barrister as well as what brings them the greatest satisfaction in their jobs!
Please contact Mr Edge to reserve a place for either or both of the talks.
